Most antiperspirants work by clogging pores with Aluminium salts. Aluminium in our armpits? No thanks. We feel that aluminium belongs in our roofs, not under our arms! Our formula works by allowing perspiration (which is odourless) and controlling odour causing bacteria. No bacteria, no smell.
We are proud of developing this unique formula in Australia. Bottled in a 60ml roll-on to make it easy to apply. We hope you enjoy the peace of mind doing something healthy for your body brings.
Do natural deodorants work?
The confusion here seems to be endless. The answer is, well it depends. In comparison to antiperspirant products, which just like the name implies are anti-perspiration, then no, ours doesn’t work. The reason for this is because it’s a deodorant, which means it deodorises. No natural deodorant is an antiperspirant because ingredients that stop you from sweating by clogging your sweat glands contain aluminum, and putting aluminum under your arms isn’t exactly the most natural thing in the world.
Whether a crystal, a paste, or a roll-on like ours, the effectiveness of a deodorant is how well it controls your smelliness. Specifically, we use an alkaline formula to control odour-causing bacteria from throwing a party (no bacteria = no smell), but others like to use essential oils. We’re just not that into smelling like a Tea Tree Forest, and essentials oils can sometimes sting the delicate, thin skin of the armpit. You will still sweat – a natural process, and one we prefer not to mess with.
What’s the deal with switching to natural deodorants?
We often hear from customers who start using our natural deodorant after a long history of antiperspirant use. After a few days, some of them get in touch concerned that our deodorant doesn’t work for them, but mostly they’re just not used to sweating at all and think it’s not working. Some of them even let us know that they became really smelly. While this sounds bad, it’s actually a good thing. It means that your sweat glands are starting to detoxify themselves after being clogged up for so many years. Hallelujah! We found that there is a transition period of about 2 weeks as the body adjusts to the new glorious freedom of natural deodorant.
Is this product made of milk?
We aren’t called MooGoo because our products are based on milk. Fresh milk in a deodorant would go off and be smelly. Yuck! We do use Milk Protein in some of our creams and hair care products, and it’s sourced ethically and sustainably from happy and healthy cows raised on a beautiful farm in New Zealand. But this product in particular is free from all dairy-based ingredients.
Aqua (H₂O’s Fancy Name), Magnesium Hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia), Xanthan Gum (Food Grade Thickener), Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt), Backhousia Citiodora (Lemon Myrtle) Leaf Oil, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract.
We choose to avoid repeated exposure to ingredients like Parabens, Phenoxyethanol and penetration enhancers. And many more we don’t have room to list here.
We show all the ingredients on our website, not just the pretty ones. That way you can see why we chose them and get in touch if you have any more questions.
Please be aware that ingredients may vary from time to time. Please refer to the ingredient list on the product packaging for the most up-to-date and relevant list of ingredients!
- I have been using your products since they first came on the market and recently we were travelling overseas so thought I would try your Fresh Cream Deodorant. I have to admit I'm not a roll-on person, harmful sprays for me at present and Aluminium free has never worked for me but, I thought I’d give it a go. We stayed in Singapore for 9 days and all I can say is BRILLIANT!!!! It was so humid there and I was fresh as a daisy. – Chris
- I just wanted to let you know that your fresh cream deodorant is the best deodorant I have ever used! It does not even compare to supermarket brands or other natural ones! I ran out recently and was desperate so used a store-bought deodorant (yuck) and it stopped working in about an hour! Your deodorant lasts all day and smells great. This is coming from someone who has tried for years to find a good deodorant, so thank you!! – Ash
- I use your deodorant, which I was worried about for the first couple of days but has been amazing, I have been using it for 6 months now. I am a martial artist, so it's important to have one that works! - Emma
